Orange County Los Angeles County Museum Free Admission Days

If one of your goals this year is saving money this year, you might like this list of Museum Free Admission Days for Los Angeles and Orange County Museums.



Here is a list of Orange County and Los Angeles County Museums and the dates that they offer free admission. Website links to the museums on this list will give you additional information on parking, operating hours, tours and special events.  Note that if you have a large group, you may want to check out the museum website to get additional information.


Southern California has many museums and offers an educational experience for the entire family. Many have eateries within their facilities or close by. I always love to peruse the gift shops for unique gifts for friends.
